Spent the morning in sewing heaven sorting through the collection of a fabric lover. Have come home with a mountain of fabulous retro prints, florals, stripes, spots and tartins.....yummy, yummy. Don't you just love fabric? Each piece is a little bundle of anticipation of what it might become...a groovy skirt, cushion, window dressing, toy...the list is endless. Some were still done up in brown paper, tied up with string....my heart is full. Needless to say the daughter of the lady who had owned it thought I was a bit nuts (yes guilty as charged!)...as I ooed and ahhed. She is not a fabric lover. But she was very happy that her mum's collection would find new homes and go to other fabric collectors and crafters.
Once I get them all measured they will be off to the Woollangabba Antique Centre.
